Appearance: As clear as the eyes of someone that has a drug test at the end of the week and colored like the phlegm of a twenty-year smoker. All that aside, this beer actually looks impressive: a good frothy head slowly falls into a hazy crown on top of a slow bubbling elixir. The carbonation here is truly mesmerizing in how constant, slow, and uniform it seems. Color aside, this is top-notch for an American pale lager.
Smell: Strong cereal grain and sugar. Not particularly what I’d ever be looking for.
Taste: Very watery with regards to mouthfeel and taste; I’m immediately put off by that. It’s so thin-bodied that it’s impossible to enjoy. It tastes sweet, but I’m not sure what kind of sweetness it is; very artificial. There’s a faint biscuit-like taste that could be nice, but even with the watery disposition of this beer that taste doesn’t carry very well. There is no aftertaste.
Overall: A good beer should be about balance. Bitter is not always bad and there is such a thing as too sweet. This beer just lacks substance. I will say that I was shocked by how nice it looked and I’m equally impressed with the lacing. A beer can’t live on that alone though. 41/100.
Up Next: Busch Light (The pain train continues!)
